Schools Workshops, baking classes and designer cakes for all occasions!
Centrepiece Cakes by Kerry is much more than a cake design company – I also provide schools’ workshops that combine the magic of baking with chemistry to get your pupils loving their science lessons.
I’m Kerry Herbert, a mum, wife, and former scientist turned bespoke cake designer and baking educator based in Enfield. I offer three main services to clients all over North London and South Herts.

I love to bake but I also love to teach others how to bake, whether that’s supporting teachers with pupils in schools or helping busy mums find exciting ways to engage and learn with their children.
Schools’ workshops in London
My schools’ workshops follow National Curriculum guidance, combining the fun and experimentation of science with baking. Each lesson aligns to key topics in the science curriculum, exploring the topic in a practical and engaging way.
When you are looking for an external provider to come into your school, you need to be confident that they fully understand the learning outcomes you need to see, they can manage class dynamics whilst achieving those results and that they can entertain, motivate and engage the children for the duration of the session.
I know this can be a challenge; managing a large group of children takes skill, patience and practice. One school I work with said:
“Kerry works with our pupils in Hayes. She is great with our children and works closely and thoughtfully with our staff to provide lessons that meet their needs and that of the curriculum.
Her subject knowledge and pedagogy are of a high standard and the children really enjoy and look forward to her sessions. She is always professional and extremely well organised. We are fortunate to have her work with us and look forward to future ventures.”

Designer cakes and online baking classes
Centrepiece Cakes by Kerry is a North London based cake design studio with a difference – life-long learning extends to all areas of my business, whether I’m mastering a new technique myself, holding an online cupcake decorating class or helping children to understand why cakes rise. I believe that everyone can enjoy the experience of baking and can have the ‘wow’ factor from their own bakes or when they commission a cake from me.
I set up my cake design business in 2012 after falling in love with cake art whilst searching for someone to make my wedding cake. Since then, I’ve made hundreds of bespoke occasion cakes, all designed from scratch, working to each client’s specifications – regular communication is vital, so you’ll be kept informed of progress, especially when it comes to those big occasions. Working from my fully registered and insured kitchen based in Enfield, Middlesex, I use the highest quality ingredients to produce an extensive range of cakes and cupcakes.

When I’m not mixing up the next batch of cake batter, you’ll find me spending time with my husband and daughters, chilling out with a good book or binge watching a TV boxset.
